The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle or PHEV features a multimedia communication system called MMCS, which is displayed via a high-resolution screen.
The MMCS controls a number of key functions including Bluetooth and USB phone connections, audio playback, digital radio, CD control, and satellite navigation operation. To input a destination on the satellite navigation, press the NAV button. And then input your desired address or post code.
You may also search for point of interest in the area such as a fuel station or shopping center. The system will then choose the most efficient route to your destination. You may also choose alternate routes if they're available.
It will also monitor traffic conditions, and reroute the vehicle around congestion or accidents when necessary. A range of other options are provided including the setting of a home address and the avoidance of toll roads or motorways.
Pressing the compass icon allows further customization of navigation screens to provide a range of useful information to the driver. The MMCS also provides a wide range of other functions including detailed information on driving modes. These screens are accessed via the info button or EV icon on the map screen.
The energy monitor indicators show energy consumption by the air-conditioning and electric motors plus other similar data. The flow screen displays the flow of energy through the drive system, which changes according to driving conditions.
The ECO information screen displays the driver's ECO score as well as fuel consumption, cruising range, and other useful data. An indication of the current driving range of the vehicle is shown on a map as a cruising range area. The EV button can also direct you to the nearest charging points, and provide a range of other services including calculating the cost of charging the vehicle.
Finally, the MMCS also displays the image from the reversing 360-degree bird's eye camera when engaging reverse gear.
